The hallmark of Belgian Triples are fruity esters balanced with a dry finish that fall in the range of 7-9% ABV. And for this yearís 19th anniversary celebratory brew, we decided to create a stylistically perfect beerósomething unusual considering our penchant for producing eccentric beers that defy styles or categories.

In excited anticipation of 20 years and the new brewery, we concocted this very traditional, yeast driven, dry and fruity Tripel.

Onionkid (376) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - OCT 2, 2012
22oz Bottle. Aroma is pretty mellow, but has fruit, spice, and yeast to it. The taste is of heavy yeast with some spice, a bit of fruit (some peach, banana, some others I canít really tell) along with some notable pepper and again...yeast! A good, well bodied beer with a solid mouthfeel and a great finish. Smooth, carbonated and to the point. This is absolutely up there with the rest of Averyís best! 8.2% abv.

mcberko (11949) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 30, 2012
22 oz. bottle, pours a hazy pale yellow with a small white head - looks quite dull. Aroma is fairly yeast, with some dry apples and hay. Flavour is characterized primarily by the yeast and dry apples, not a traditional tripel by any means, but not a cloying sweet American "tripel" either. Finishes yeasty and apple-forward, with a medium duration. Decent, albeit forgettable tripel.

Honey and yeast aroma. Honey gold color. Too bitter for a Belgian. Too much like an IPA. Lingering ghost of sweetness. I might have rated this a little higher had it not been from Avery and not been labeled a Belgian. I had high expectations from Averyís other offerings and their other Belgian style beers.

On draught at the Avery Tap Takeover at 4th Street Patio Bar and Grill on 09/26/2012: This brew pours a hazy straw color with a medium white head that dissipates slowly. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, clove and yeast. Medium body with flavors of spicy yeast, malt, spices and a touch of hops. The finish is sweet with a grain and yeast aftertaste. Above average overall.

The aroma is a spicy and fruity assortment of clove, pear, peach and white pepper. Full-bodied with lively carbonation. The flavor is fruity & lightly spiced with a decent hop kick. Finishes with sweetness that was a little overwhelming.

I almost didnít buy a glass of this - the sample I had at the bar tasted like a cross between a wheat beer and cough syrup. But Iím giving it a shot anyway... just because Iíve had everything else available at Flying Saucer San Antonio. It has a solid, medium-orange color and a dense, bright white head that reminds me a little of frothy egg whites. Its aroma is unique, but good... a slight perfume thatís almost floral shoves its way into the nose, then continues to decorate with a sweet, alcoholic, almost cherry-like alcohol stickiness. Itís a really nice bouquet, actually. In the mouth... not as fun. It has a very smooth and practically silky mouth feel, but thatís where the smoothness stops. Itís flavor is a little awkward, and almost uncomfortable. I will admit that the beer is well-brewed and very interesting, but itís just too weird for me and not really that great of a drinker. Thereís an unmistakably oat or wheat-like undertone to the beer thatís a little excessive, and a slight sour or astringent resulting finish combines with the almost cough syrup-like alcohol and fruit character to cause me to make some serious inner and outer faces. Sorry, Avery... but sometimes you can mess a good thing up.
